Laser are repeatedly employed to treat periodontal, or gum disease. Laser gum surgery has shown to help patients get results similar to, if not better than, root planing and scaling in many medical studies. Laser gum surgery can assist to treat severe periodontal disease. Gum disease is the result of accumulated bacteria which has built up under hardened tartar. The bacteria attack the soft tissues and eventually the bone when not treated. To treat the condition, the surgeon will remove the inflamed gum tissue and clean away any bacteria from the exposed tooth. Any rough spots on the tooth will be smoothed as well in order to prevent another infection.
Benefits of laser gum treatment can include:
At the office, the oral surgeon has been expertly trained. The doctor will ensure that the correct wavelength is used and the power level for the patient’s unique needs and condition is employed. At the practice, the doctor specializes in the LANAP® technique. The LANAP®, or laser assisted new attachment procedure, is the new advancement in the laser treatment of gum disease and utilizes a specially designed laser, the PerioLase™, which is especially successful at treating periodontal disease and preserving the gums.
Gum disease can unfortunately return. To avoid this, maintain good oral hygiene following the procedure and on a regular basis. Brushing and flossing your teeth is necessary. An antimicrobial mouthwash can also help to kill any remaining bacteria in the mouth and is highly recommended. Patients should also avoid or discontinue smoking. Smoking significantly increases the risk of contracting another infection and it is best to quit to avoid problems. Following the procedure, the dentist will provide specific instructions to each patient. It is extremely important to listen to these suggestions and incorporate them into your daily hygiene routine.
